No need to constantly press Ctrl/CMD + S. It helps you achieve a perfect workflow with file watchers (*Gulp, Grunt, npm, CodeKit*...). Simple demo gif: ![brackets-autosaver](img/demo.gif) ## How does it work? Brackets-autosaver hooks to key presses. To avoid triggering a file save command on every-single-keypress the extension waits **400ms** (or any other delay of your choosing) from the **last** key pulsation. So once you're finished typing a few words or a simple correction, **then** it saves the document (always the one you just edited). It also detects changes made by cuting or pasting contents. ## Is it always on? Nope. You can turn this feature on and off easily from the File menu. So just check or uncheck **File -> Enable auto saving**. ## How to install this awesome thing? Like any other Brackets extension. Either look for it within Brackets extension manager or download this repo and drop it on Brackets. **Feel free to open any issues, I'll take care of them.**
